Oatmeal Peanut Butter Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
Made it as written, but used honey instead of corn syrup. Next time will try it with crunchy PB, Craisins or dried cherries to offset some of the sweetness and toss in some Chia seeds. Will allow the bars to chill in the fridge to get a firmer consistency.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
My very picky DH raved about this taco seasoning. All the ingredients are already in my pantry. Can't go wrong with this recipe.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2014
Made this for a church potluck. Used a 9 x 13 casserole dish which was wiped clean. Got rave reviews. Did not have enough milk for the recipe so I supplemented with SILK COCONUT MILK which gave the casserole a really nice flavor and texture. Will add shredded coconut next time. Added 1/2 cup RAISINS--will increase to a full cup next time. This is a very versatile recipe that you can embellish with chopped apples, nuts, etc. Thanks for sharing.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
Baked this for a church meeting. One recipe yielded about 80 3-inch cookies. They were quickly devoured. I got rave reviews all night long. I am not a CCC fan but the one cookie I sampled was crispy at the edges, soft but not gooey on the inside. I was surprised that with the 2 cups of sugar in the recipe, it was not overly sweet. NOTE: make sure oven rack is set in the middle of the oven for a nice brown cookie color in 13 minutes baking time.

Cheesy Ham Potato Bake

A wonderful receipe! Brought it to a church potluck and there was no leftover to bring home. Followed the recipe exactly but omitted the salt. Sprinkled crushed potato chips immediately prior to serving. Delicious!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
This is a winner! So easy and so good....Made it as is, except didn't need to add any salt as the ham and bouillon provided all the flavor. Served it with toasted buttered french bread.

Simple, Classic Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
This is how my DH rated this recipe. He helped me assemble the ingredients and supervise the seasoning. We halved the recipe and followed it closely except for the additional chicken stock to moisten the filling more (DH likes his sauces). Sadly, we did not have cooking wine but will make sure to add it next time. Used both top and bottom crusts--the bottom crust was soggy since I only baked it for 30 minutes. Will increase baking time next time.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
MY very picky DH loved this and agreed wholeheartedly that it is THE BEST TUNA CASSEROLE. The best he's ever had! I followed the recipe but did not have mushrooms, which I will make sure I will add fresh mushrooms next time. I added chopped celery for crunch, garlic powder, and about 1/4 c of the tuna water to add a bit more moisture and flavor to the casserole.

My Ambrosia

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Made it for a New Years Eve potluck and it was a hit! It was a perfect complement to the Honeybaked ham that the hostess served along with the other green salads. I was looking forward to taking home the leftover but the hostess gave me back my clean bowl. When asked for the recipe, I don't bother writing it down for them. I simply say, "Allrecipe.com" and they know what to do. I made the recipe as is, minus the walnuts (nut restriction) and marshmallows (wanted the salad to be less like a dessert). Everyone wanted to know what was the crunch in the salad and were excited to know about the toffee bits. Used pineapple tidbits, instead of crushed. I added the mandarins oranges as late in the mixing as possible to minimize crushing. NOTE: Drain fruits very well to avoid soupy salad. I am now looking for the next occasion to make this again and try to whip my own heavy cream instead of CoolWhip.

Spiced Percolator Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
it is as good as they say it is. Served this punch at a church Ladies Christmas gathering. Every one wanted to the recipe to make for their own events. I did not have a percolator, so I threw the ingredients in a crockpot, with the cloves wrapped in cheesecloth. The longer it sat in the crockpot, the better the flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Cranberry Orange Relish

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
I've been making fresh cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving for years with a whole orange (including peel and pith) and a full cup of sugar. I did this recipe as instructed. I agree with the other reviewers that the cinnamon is overkill and took away some of the cranberry-ness of the sauce. Sad. Next time, I'll stick to my original easy simple recipe with 3 ingredients.

Lemon Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
This is dangerously EASY to make. Made it twice already using my Cuisinart food processor. I started by pulsing the dry ingredients to blend. Add and pulse in big chunks of cold butter until you have consistency of small crumbs. Then I added zest of WHOLE lemon. Pulse to mix. Drizzle in buttermilk (instead of sour milk) + 2 T of lemon juice. Process until the dough is balled in the processor. Transfer dough to floured surface and knead. Press dough onto baking sheet as directed. Brush buttermilk on surface. Sprinkle and gently press in turbidnado sugar.....next time, will add chopped nuts to dough and top with lemon drizzle.

Fresh Ginger Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Had a craving for Chik Fil A carrot raisin salad and was glad to find this recipe. Had most of the ingredients, used LF vanilla/banana yogurt in my fridge; eyeballed the measurements, and skipped the nuts. I couldn't wait the flavor-blending hour, but had to have it right away. This is not as sweet as Chick Fil A's, but just as satisfying....When my mother made this in the Philippines, she would add shredded cabbage with mayo and sugar for the dressing.

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
I prefer a cobbler over cake but DH and friends raved about this recipe served with vanilla ice cream. I used 2 x 29oz cans of peaches in heavy syrup, assembled the ingredients in the casserole dish the night before, I put some of the cake mix on the bottom of the dish as recommended, mixed in instant oatmeal to the top cake mix layer. I assembled the ingredients the night before and baked it 4 hours prior to serving. I'd like to try this with other fruits as recommended by other reviewers. Next time, I will use light syrup fruits next time or skip the sugars if I use heavy syrup; put >1/3 of the cake mix in the bottom; mix in quick cook oats and/or chopped nuts with the top layer for more crunch. Thanks for the recipe.

Pineapple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Wow! Followed other's recommendations and used only one stick of butter and 2/3 cup sugar. Dried blueberries was a perfect flavor match. The pudding was too dry for me so I drizzled some of the pinapple juice on top and at the edges. Next time will add the pineapple juice for moister texture.
